Clearly fake. I never heard of that site so its not a credible source. Why is it only that site that is advertising this 'revolutionary' program. The program looks like one of those fake AVs by the screenshot, looks very generic. Moreover, idk about desktop as I'm using my phone, but the images on the page are stretched very much. It proves this site was not pregrammed properly by a professional which further makes it more suspicious. And those are only some of the points. IMO the page is so blatantly fake.

BTW that link looks very clickbait too. Looks like the author just wants loads of clicks

For those interested, this is the bas64 decoded query string from the URL...just a bunch of GUIDs:
Code:
vid..00000006-1c33-4e6d-8000-000000000000__vpid..b08c7800-b98a-11e6-8963-6100df89d796__caid..8c7d2dc1-07ab-4590-a7c3-aed08857a5f6__rt..R__lid..633dd232-ecd0-40fb-b056-80b84b3e6cde__oid1..d4d5598a-2e4a-4464-a8d9-9958967f331a__var1..5320581__var2..100__rd..paid\.\outbrain\.\com__aid..__ab..__sid..
Still not clicking the link though lol.

A good tip for articles on the web: if it has a click bait title, don't visit it.
